    I like this idea. Local music everywhere is so under-appreciated. There's a lot of talent out there (but also a lot of no-talent wannabes) just waiting to be discovered.

    Oooh, this sounds great!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
